rf toggle receiver

by arunns on Fri Feb 01, 2013 10:36 am

I've recently bought the rf keyfob (https://www.adafruit.com/products/1095) and the rf t4 receiver (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1097). For my project, I need to make some of the pins momentary. Is this possible using an Arduino?
I've tried running the button example program but it still works as a toggle-type control.
thanks in advance

The M4 version of the receiver is momentary. http://www.adafruit.com/products/1096
In software you could probably fake a momentary switch by generating a one-shot pulse on a state change. What is your application?

im trying to design a device which can turn while going forward. i can do the forward motion using the motor i want to use on a toggle-basis but the steering control has to be quickly activated/deactivated so i thought a momentary type would be better.
i tried to run the arduino button example (because the program seems to be momentary) but it still works as a toggle receiver.

That would not be possible to do in software using that receiver. But you could use one of each receiver. The transmitter will control both of them at the same time. You can connect your direction control to the T4 receiver and the steering control to the M4.
